Sweet Sponsor: E-Mealz

It doesn’t matter if you’re a homeschooling mom or a public school mom or a private school mom or any other kind of mom:  it’s back to school time and most all of us could use any help we can manage to scrounge up when it comes to organization.

For us, soccer seasons are the busiest, and require careful planning, especially for meals.  If I don’t plan something uber quick or for the crockpot on practice days {which are three times a week}, we’ll end up eating fast food.  Don’t judge me.

Sure, I could sit there and peruse the Publix ad and put together a meal plan for the week, but whether anybody admits it or not, it takes time.  And to me, it’s not terribly fun.  Cooking?  Yes that’s fun.  Making a list around sale items?  No, that’s not fun.

E-Mealz is a great solution to this dilemma.  Each week, an experienced team reviews store sales ads, seasonal specials, and dietary restrictions and puts together a menu of dinners for the week.  These menus usually include seven ingredients or less and a prep time of 30 minutes or less.  In addition, the meal plans are designed around a budget of $75 per week for families and $35 per week for individuals.

Sisters Jane DeLaney and Jenny Cochran started the program in 2003 when they became frustrated about the challenges associated with creating healthy and budget-friendly meals for their families.  They’ve even created a blog, Make Time for Family, that’s full of recipes, tips to simply and organize, and plan family fun.  And hey, it’s even recommended by Dave Ramsey, so it has to be good!

The service only costs $5 per month, which is a steal for the information you get.  E-Mealz even provides you with an aisle-by-aisle shopping list, in addition to your recipes.  Be sure to check them out on Facebook and Twitter as well!

E-Mealz has been gracious enough to donate two three month subscriptions to their awesome service to my back to school giveaway packages next week!  AND, if you don’t win a subscription, they’ve provided a discount code for you to get 10% off your subscription, just use “PHENOMENA” {no quotes}.  How awesome are they?!?!

True Confessions:  I didn’t get any free stuff in exchange for posting this spotlight.  I just think E-Mealz is awesome and wanted to share with you guys!
